Endless Summer Opening
Arts on Douglas is pleased to announce the opening of a group exhibition, Endless Summer. This summer themed exhibition features a selection of artworks by 17 established artists ranging in style, approach, and media. The exhibition will be on view from August 3, 2013 through August 31, 2013.
The participating artists include: Stephen Bach, Jean Banas, Marc Barrett, Donne Bitner, Marilyn Catlow, Lee Dunkel, René Guerin, Riitta Klint, Tim Ludwig, Larry Moore, Gretchen Nass, Audrey Phillips, Mary Schimpff Webb, Jeanne Schubert, Wendy Tatter, Anna Tomczak, and John Wilton.
Endless Summer offers more than visual references to the beach. Additional highlights from the exhibition include artists whose work introduce new color palettes inspired by the lingering daylight. There are those whose stylistic approach is motivated by the energy, activity, and emotion of the season. In addition, there are those whose work are contemplations of visits to botanical gardens.
At the opening reception, a digital “faux-to booth,” including playful summer themed props, will be available for guests to create and capture their summertime memories of the event. The images will be posted to the Arts on Douglas Facebook page and Instagram under the hashtag #aodsummer.
Guests are also encouraged to dress in “beach chic” attire to receive 10% off Endless Summer purchases.
The Clay Gallery, located next door to Arts on Douglas will also be joining in the Endless Summer celebration. The gallery, which is situated in a lush tropical garden, provides a relaxing backdrop to make new friends and summertime memories. There will be live summer-themed music, refreshments, and an array of pottery, jewelry, glass, and wood artwork for purchase from 4-8 PM.
